    I went to get my daughter a cell phone and all she wanted was a Iphone 5 when she could've got a better droid phone at half the price. I feel I have failed as a Dad :(

    Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    There are probably good reasons other than fashion for her to have an iPhone. If most of her friends have iPhones or iPads or iMacs then there are still compatibility issues if you have an Android.

    I have a Galaxy SII that I have had for two years and consider superior to the iPhone for several reasons. Even my little sister who works on the Mothership thinks it's cool (but not as good as an Apple of course). I have no problems with it whatsoever.

    The problem is that the iPads 1 - 3 do not have universal Bluetooth connectivity. They can't pair with anything except an iPhone. My macbook can pair with my Galaxy as can my mom's imac, but her ipad can't. So to give her files, i have to send them in email.
